Gambler Angela (Patricia Medina) supports her drunken father, 'Doc' Medley (Henry Hull), and runs around with the gunslinger Slinger (Gerald Mohr).
But she really loves the new doctor in town Dr. Bruce Merritt (Richard Denning)–and the inevitable showdown looms.

Too Tame To Be Adult
While this western tries to be like it's TV counter-parts of the time (1957) and a few other semi-adult westerns of the day as well, it fails on all counts. Patricia Medina, Gerald Mohr, and Richard Denning had all been in better films. Why they decided to do this one is anybody's guess. Cssting as a whole is strange. Some good character players and familiar ones as well mixed in with non-actors and others. It's hard to tell who is working and who is just trying to make a buck here. Production values are also not very good. Story is just the worst dreck. United Artists distributed this mainly to put product in the theatres and the drive-ins in the 50's. when television was keeping people home and the number of theatres hadn't fallen much and were demanding product. So pass this up unless you really need a Patrcia Medina fix, or follow the career of John Ford player Hank Worden. You've been warned.
